Whatever priest is saying she cannot be baptized is wrong! We had our son baptized and we were not even married, but living together and the priest knew this. I will double check this with our current priest, he is an expert at canon law.

We have spoken 2 times since the big blow out and it only got worse before it got better. I am at the point where I make no effort anymore. If she can't accept my marriage, pregnancy, and happiness then it is her loss. Thanks for asking, that was sweet Jessica.

But Im not about to dish out a couple of grand like my brother did just to get my first marriage removed from their books. How obserd! I paid my attorney enough money, lol.....(still paying actually, 3.5yrs later!)
The boys were all baptized Baptist but Mike really wants her to be raised Catholic so I respect him on it. I hear ya on attorney fees!

I think it is so awesome that all 3 of you know each other!

Hi Pamela!! I have not seen you around much lately. How are you doing? Getting ready to have your baby!!!

In my church where I was baptized (southern baptist), baptism was something done when you're old enough to make the decision for yourself. My baby sister (now 13) was blessed at ~5 months old.

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with this.. I hope you'll be able to get her baptized!!
